Fedora 7 rocks!
I have to say Fedora 7 rocks as a desktop OS. I am extremely impressed with how easily F7 installed on my laptop. Everything just works!
In order to get the third-party apps I like to use installed properly, I had to add an exclude= lines to a .repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d/.
To get xine, mplayer, and amarok-extras-nonfree to install, I had to add this line to freshrpms.repo:
I suppose if I wasn’t using amarok-extras-nonfree from livna, I wouldn’t need to force yum to get the xine-related packages from livna instead of using the newer versions at FreshRPMS.
So, kpilot finally works with my Treo 700p in F7. It nuked all my to-do items, but after that, it works great!
